POLL: How Would Post Office Closures Affect You?
Arlington Heights and East Arlington branches are on a list of 3,700 post offices that could soon be closed.
The U.S. Postal Service is in dire financial trouble, and locations in Arlington Heights and East Arlington are on a list of 3,700 branches nationwide considered for closure. They are two of Arlington's three post offices, as the list does not include the Postal Service's main branch in Arlington Center.
On Monday, USPS officials came out to Town Hall on Monday to hear what residents think about the possible closure.
Dozens of attendees said the move could lower quality of service and decrease access for disabled and elderly residents of the town.
